Orebro is now closed

Hello

sad to say that the development shop in Orebro, Sweden (I think it was there?) was closed last week for Christmas and for the last time. I believe that all there lost their jobs.

It was also where all the old Husaberg information was stored and so I'm not sure where all the old paperwork will be archived?

perhaps Jocke_d knows a bit more about this - he usually does? If I'm right, there is therefore no Swedish connection to Motorcycle Industry for the first time in over 113 years (since 1903). please remember that Husqvarna are the oldest Motorcycle manufacturer in the world and beat Hardly-a-Davison by one precious year. Imagine if they hadn't....

a sad day but an inevitable one I'm afraid....

regards

Taffy

Sad. Hard to believe that there isn't something motorcycle-development related going on there in Sweden. It's a long and wonderful tradition of building lovely, fast, and dare I say it: unconventional bikes. Hoping this isn't the only place I get to visit during my long anticipated and still not concrete trip back to the land of my father . . .
